Meridian Colorado is a small but growing community to the south of Denver, part of the Home Rule Municipality of Parker. The nearby highway I-25 gives easy access to Downtown Denver, which is just a half hour’s commute away. Colorado Springs is just a 50 minute drive south. The RTD Light Rail Park and Ride at Lincoln Station is also only a couple of miles away, as are the Park Meadows and Castle Rock Shopping Malls, the Denver Tech Center and Centennial Airport. The development of the new Meridian International Business Center has provided a boost for increased home building in this strategically well positioned area of the Southeast Business Corridor.
Move to Meridian
Moving to Meridian is to take advantage of a location that combines the best of both worlds: it is conveniently close to the city and all that has to offer, while having a friendly, village feel that is perfect for bringing up a family. Here you have room to breath. The open spaces, the mountain views and opportunities for recreation right on your doorstep make it one of the most desirable places to live in Douglas County, which has been called the healthiest county in Colorado. You can enjoy a round of golf at the Jack Nicklaus Championship course at Meridian Golf Club, or explore the state parks of Roxborough, Chatfield and Castlewood Canyon.
Meridian’s real estate market is typical of much of Douglas County in its mix of stylish and luxurious homes as well as a range of affordable homes, with current average sale prices running at under $300,000. The median house value in Meridian is $308,900. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes and new construction properties in Meridian ranging in price between around $200,000 to $850,000.
The new development of Meridian Village is a great addition to the area, offering new build homes at great value and with a range of floor plans and design ideas to suit any buyer. With Home Owners Association (HOA) fees at a low $65 per month, you can enjoy the communal amenities such as the Village Pool, which has changing rooms, a large deck and picnic areas. There are also so many paths for walking and cycling which link up with the Cherry Creek Trail, and there are several small neighborhood parks and children’s playgrounds.
Meritage Homes has introduced a new pricing range for their Simply Smart Series of properties in Meridian village, starting at $209,900. If you’re able to move quickly, you may even get a generous discount. This is a very well respected building company, which is known for its quality of design and finish and for its commitment to green principles, using sustainable methods and materials throughout the process of designing and building. The company is also involved in projects in Parker at Sierra Ridge and Rocking Horse.
Richmond American is also involved in the Horseshoe Ridge, Idyllwilde, Peoria Place and Stepping Stone projects—all in the Parker area— as well as having a major commitment in the Meridian Village project at The Legacy, a new phase of construction with at least twenty new homes in various stages of completion. There are three different designs built on several lots, all with magnificent views of the mountains, with prices starting at around $280,000.
Esprit Homes has built some impressively luxurious ranch style homes, which have a fantastic flow of spaces on one level. Two of their designs also include the option of a second story, and all are equipped with the latest word in kitchen luxury, with hardwood floors, granite worktops and Bosch kitchen appliances.
KB Homes has a range of newly built two-storey villas at Meridian Village ready for a quick move-in, or they can be built to order. All have a private side yard. These range from the Cyprus two- to three-bedroom home for $270,874 to the Redwood three- to five-bedroom home selling at $289,495.
Top of the list
Douglas County has been seen as leading the way in recovery of the housing market in the Denver Metro area, which itself has been named number one on the list of American cities that are recovering from the nationwide housing slump. Nearly half of Douglas County homes have been built since 2000, and a massive 80% date from no earlier than the 1990s. The town of Parker is a young community whose average resident’s age is only 32.5, with a median income per household of over $87,000. This is an area that is growing both in economic terms and popularity: it is a great place to live and work.
